Richard Spaven | "Muscle Memory" by Frederic Robinson

  • Published on Feb 18, 2021 veröffentlicht
  • Vic Firth Artist Richard Spaven joins artist Frederic Robinson on his second single, "Muscle Memory" from Frederic's EP "Hiding Music In Everything".
    Frederic Robinson is proud to unveil 'Muscle Memory', the second single taken from his upcoming EP 'Hiding Music In Everything' due for a summer 2021 release.
    Following 'ENGRAM' which receives great support from across the board, this new track features world renowned drummer Richard Spaven bringing his trademark subtle yet incredibly skillful and tasty playing to Frederic's intricate production. This is not the two musicians' first collaboration as Frederic co-produced a couple of tracks from Richard's last album 'Real Time'.
    "'Muscle Memory' feels like the perfect fusion of what both Rich’s and my music is all about. It’s been a really exciting process getting all the elements together; from finding the right colors and textures for the instrumental, to locking in one of Rich’s masterful grooves. I’m so proud of what we made here and I hope you feel the love that went into it!" ~ Frederic

    That was possibly the most graceful drumming I’ve ever seen

      @Sanchit Batra Was about to comment the same.
      Gavin Harrison's 19 days is the epitome of graceful, elegant and beautiful drumming

    So sophisticated and restrained! No one like him.
    Gotta give props to the sound engineer. Rarely do you hear such clarity and focus in drum recordings!

      Blended so beautifully with almost dead sound of the cymbals.

    phenomenal Richard a lot of coordination, subtlety and musicality every time you play the drums. meinl byzance cymbals great sound i'm in love with them

    To me, this sounds like advanced version of JD Beck drumming. Amazing

    • bishopoftroy
      bishopoftroy 2 years ago +2

      They have absolutely nothing in common. JD Beck is just a wind-up toy.

    • Rhys Graham
      Rhys Graham 2 years ago +2

      @bishopoftroy JD's like 15 though, give him a few years to figure out how to play with a bit more restraint and he definitely has the technical ability to pull this off. Although it's a rare drummer indeed that's as tasteful as the Spave

    • bishopoftroy

      @Rhys Graham I agree, though his style is kind of already there but it`s nice that everyone is unique. Linear playing is a trend now that everyone is jumping on.

    Excellent composition and audio production. I think this is my path. I refer to my path as I will start composing this type of experimental music, I am just waiting a couple of days to finish my studio (acoustically treated).
